I am someone who loves to learn but understands the needs of struggling learners myself. I am an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher, and as such have abundant knowledge of and experience in teaching all aspects of English, from grammar, vocabulary, reading, and writing, to spelling. Having also prepped students for the GED, I understand test taking strategies and important study skills. I have a deep love of History, having graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in the subject. For the past 6 years, I have been a home school Mom, teaching a child who is a very non-traditional learner, so I understand the need to approach subjects in a non-conventional manner if necessary. Finally, I have studied and spoken Spanish for several years, and have taught Spanish I to middle schoolers in a local home school co-op. I love to learn and can show your child strategies that will lead to successful learning.

In my working career, I have utilized public speaking skills in a variety of ways. I have had several jobs that required effective public speaking skills, most notably, being employed as a park ranger with the National Park Service, which required me to present talks to large and diverse audiences. My current job as an ESOL teacher requires effective public speaking as well. I have also taught a Public Speaking course to middle school students.
